Born in Wheeling, West Virginia, this good old boy is a country music superstar. He has recorded seven albums plus a Christmas one. Of his 25 singles that have charted on the Billboard Hot Country chart a whopping 15 of them have made it all the way to number one. Even more amazing is the fact that he has had 10 straight number ones.
Paisley has been playing guitar since the age of 8 and performed live for the first time at the age of 10. He went on to complete his schooling and even got a degree from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee in music business.
He released his first album in 1999 "Who Needs Pictures" and has never looked back. He has won many Country Music Awards and Grammy Awards. The list of his tour mates or musicians he has collaborated with reads like a who's who of the country music industry. The list includes Dolly Parton, Terri Clark, Lonestar, Reba McEntire, and Alan Jackson.
Late last year Paisley released his first greatest hits package and has toured on the back of it ever since. A new studio album is rumoured to be released in the spring of 2011.
